Sutter Wanted Iginla, But Iginla Didn’t Want Sutter
Marty McSorley told reporters Darryl Sutter really wanted to be reunited with Jarome Iginla
Reports today confirm the Kings were the 3rd team trying to get him.
Since it was Jarome’s choice where he went, he decided to be reunited with Crosby and a weak defense and suspect goaltending instead of the reigning cup champs and MVP goaltender… and former coach.
That’s gotta sting.
Since Lombardi has a tendency to overpay for everyone (see: Penner, Carter), there’s no doubt in my mind Lombardi offered a much better package than Pittsburgh did.
In the end, Jarome just didn’t want the beach life. He wanted the cold. He wanted…. Pittsburgh?
I hope this motivates the Kings. I hope it pisses them off.
It’s nice the Kings wont have to see Morrow, Murray or Iginla any more.
Don’t look now but Anaheim has lost 4 straight. A few injuries on the defensive front should help the tailspin!
